Are you buying or renting? If you're buying, you can ask your agent to ask the listing agent what average utilities are. If you're renting, can you ask the landlord? Seems like it would be kind of impossible for anyone here to give you a clear answer, without knowing the property, the age, the size, etc. Also, if you're buying, there is likely an HOA fee -- what does that cover? Sometimes it includes some utilities like water & sewer. If you're renting, your rent may include certain utilities (like water & sewer) but not electric or gas. You need to talk to the people who would know these things. Good luck!... more
Norwalk is a diversified City on Long Island Sound, so as you can imagine, many areas of East Norwalk as well as South Norwalk (SoNo) & Rowayton are along the shoreline. Any place in particular that you would like me to research?
No. Paradise Lake in Brooklyn CT is little more than a swamp. The government removed the damn several years back and now it's just a giant mosquito breeding ground. Also, I don't know of any public access points to the 'lake'.... more
It's cozy, comfortable and full of friendly neighbors. Quinnipaug Hills feels like you are camping 24/7. Smells like fireplaces all the time as all units have one or a wood burning stove. Well water is an issue- very hard water plus klebsiella issues. Check EWG water quality reports. Would need a filter for showering/laundry and bottled water to drink...seriously QH, this is the big reason I wouldn't live here. I wouldn't want to brush my teeth with water that would make me ill. Snow removal was not ideal in '10-'12 when we lived here, people were late for work waiting for plows. I would have paid more in HOA fees to be able to get to work. Hopefully this has been remedied. The former tennis court area has still not been finished. HOA fees should have factored in those very necessary changes...since its just a deserted tennis court I wouldn't want to drive by here every day. There is no pool or clubhouse...explain the fees? All landscaping and snow removal? I am glad we rented and didn't buy the unit, but would consider going back if a few things were changed.... more

Yes, I have two properties listed that will do a Rent with purchase option. They are both located in Southbury and one has an in-law apartment attached to the 4 bedroom home. It's a very nice brick ranch, listed for $400,000. I also have a very nice 3 bedroom, well maintained home that will do a Rent/Option. That is listed for #329,000. That home is in a pretty setting and a very convenient location to schools, highway and shopping areas. I also have a rent/option possibility coming up in Middlebury. Please feel free to contact me at 203 228-0393 for more information. Thank you, Marian... more
Now is the perfect time to get your search started. I closed a rental with a 6/15 start yesterday (5/1). Darien's rental market moves quickly especially going into the summer months when people want to get settled before school year starts.
The month of May should bring many new rentals in the area. My only advice is to be ready to act if you find the right property.
I hope this is helpful. Let me know if I can help you further.
You can also research schools and demographics on the Cerc.com, choose the "Resources" tab and click on "Town Profiles" where you will see a map of all the counties in the state. Select a county and then a town within that county. (Example: Fairfield County - choose Newtown - the click "Download Latest Cerc Profile." This gives you Demographics, Economics, Education, Government, etc., etc. It's a great resource for side by side comparisons of different towns.... more
Happy New Year ! I am sorry that you are having health problems. I hope that 2014 is a better year for you. I too was a single mother of 3 children for many years. I understand that you want to feel safe. The average rent in Waterbury for a 3 bedroom is anywhere between $800-$1000. This was always out of my price range....way out of my price range ! There are several apt complexs that base your monthly rental paymant on what your income is. This may be an option for you. Feel free to give me a call 203-437-1667... more
